Stefan Borselius' Tondo range for Fogia was exhibited at last week's Stockholm Furniture Fair and consists of three designs, each a development of the one before.

"The aim was to make it classic yet playful, and preferably loved by all," said Borselius. "The road to get there became a balancing act - intuition and emotion in interaction with craftsmanship and precision."

The base design for all the chairs is formed by a simple cushioned seat and back. The next model up incorporates arms and the final design features a headrest.

All chairs come upholstered a range of colours, supported by either a dainty metal frame or rounded wooden legs.

"The chair's thin metal legs makes it pretty and classic, while the rounded wooden legs have a more playful expression," the designer said.

Other collections launched by Fogia at the fair include a series of small side tables and a sofa with a base that extends outwards to provide a surface for placing cups or books, both designed by Note Design Studio.
